Italian Potatoes

  • 4 large (or 6 medium) Russet potatoes
  • ½ cup fine, toasted bread crumbs
  • ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2-3 large tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 2 large red onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 ½ t. oregano
  • 1-1 ½ t. salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • ½ – ¾ cup olive oil

Preheat oven to 350

Peel and cut potatoes lengthwise into wedges (about 6-8 per potato) and drop into a bowl of cold water

Combine bread crumbs and grated cheese.  Do not dry the wedges before coating them well with the crumb mixture.  Place them in a shallow, 9 x 13-inch baking dish, sprinkling any remaining crumbs on top.

Top potatoes with sliced tomatoes and onion rings.  Sprinkle with oregano, salt, and a generous grinding of pepper.  Drizzle with oil just before baking.

Bake, uncovered, 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until potatoes are brown but still retain some crunchiness
